Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Viggo Mortensen

Children Ages 10+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1943

As soon as one finishes listening to this audiobook, one wants to start right back at the beginning. Narrator Viggo Mortensen treats this beloved text with care, using quiet tones to portray the Little Prince and his travels. Mortensen’s narration respects the beauty of the language and the magical nature of the story. Subtle inflections let the listener know when the downed pilot is speaking and when the Little Prince is speaking, and music transports the listener between the scenes. Listening to this book allows its imagery to float into the listener’s imagination as the people and places of the young prince come alive. Mortensen is magical, just like the story. J.K.R.
